    I was shocked to see the email from Basil. I have known Tony for a few years now. I even met him while I was researching moving to Gurley. I know this will leave a void not only in his family, but...

    Re: Some things are meant to be shared.

    When I am in the DC area, I always visit the Wall, and the Iwo memorial. Those were not my wars, but I do feel the same as the others here. Too many of my friends did not make it back from one...

    There are some of us that make a living thanks to M$ having all these issues. Besides, setting up a Linux box can be rather challenging to the uninitiated (like me)

    Re: POOR QUALITY PARTS

    I agree with the QC issues on parts that we are getting for our cars. Once could say that since they quit making (real) MGs and Triumphs some years ago, the market for parts is quickly shrinking,...

    I have been looking on Craigslist, and I see what appear to be a few good deals in my area. I would like to get a Lincoln, since that is what I was used to, at least until a "friend" borrowed it for...

    MIG Welding Anyone?

    A while ago, I posted my interest in buying a gas welding setup. From the responses I got, I figured I would have to wait and get myself a MIG welder.

    Like Bruce said, if you get hold of early car tail light assemblies, then swapping them over is no big deal. Just a bit more difficult than changing over the lenses.

    Re: Right Snap Under Heavy Braking

    I wouldn't be surprised to hear that you have a piston sticking in the caliper. Another way to tell is to drive the car a bit, and put your hand on the hub. One will be hotter than the other.

    Just my opinion of course, but why go with the dual point if you could go with the Unilite?
